1 to 1- 1/2 lbs. halibut
1/2 chopped onion, celery, carrot
6 tbsp. butter or margarine
6 tbsp. flour
2-1/2 c. milk
2 c. shredded cheddar cheese


Place halibut pieces in large frying pan. Spread vegetables over them. Add small amount of water (1/2 cup) and salt. Cover and steam until fish flakes easily (20 minutes). Turn fish after 10 minutes. Remove fish from pan and remove skin and bones. Break into large chunks. Meanwhile, make white sauce (thick). Pour into 2-quart casserole dish and layer with fish chunks over sauce, then cheddar cheese. Cover with remaining sauce. Sprinkle with pimento. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

DO NOT OVERBAKE. Fish will be dry and tough. Serves 6.

6 tbsp. margarine or butter
6 tbsp. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. white pepper
2 1/2 c. milk

Melt butter in saucepan. Add flour, salt and pepper; stir over medium heat until mixture foams. Add milk; stir occasionally until sauce is thick and smooth.
